Cathedral Ceiling

A cathedral ceiling is characterized by a peak at the middle of this room, together with the slopes from that summit having equivalent and matching sides. These slopes match the pitch of the roofline. A cathedral ceiling maximizes the space allowed by opening the ceiling into the highest possible point.
